Forbidden Orchard Discussion

I have a deck that uses Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts and my build encourages/forces attacks. I have that part put together. I was wondering if there are white and/or black cards like Forbidden Orchard and Shadrix Silverquill where they put creature tokens on opponent side of the field that can still attack me? If you need more context of how the deck works here is the list

Thanks for all the suggestions. Sorry I haven't been very active on replying, been dealing with personal stuff so all I've been doing is Deckcycling my deck. So here we go, time to reply.
Mortlocke: Gishath is so far the only commander that cares about Dinosaurs. Zacama, Primal Calamity is great, but has not one line of text saying dinosaur, Atla Palani, Nest Tender has a similar effect to Gishath, but she only gets one creature and again, doesn't care if it's a dinosaur or not. Morophon, the Boundless is a good commander for tribal, but I feel like Morophon should aid tribes that have zero support or commander options. Kaheera, the Orphanguard is a good lord, but she loses red. So yes, as of right now Gishath should be the end all be all dinosaur commander in my mind.
The comment about the counter triggered ability, so far there are only 9 spells that counter a triggered ability and most of them only do that or activated abilities, so I don't see them being used against me or more then once. I also have a burning hatred for blue players and tend to target them until a bigger threat arrives. But yes, every effect can be countered. I will go and change that in my description.
BmoreBeast: I would run Urban Daggertooth, but I feel that the next time dinosaurs get a real boost, they won't be using enrage (hopefully I am wrong). That's why I am slowly moving away from enrage triggers and more so towards trample effects. If the next time dinosaurs get support and it is with enrage triggers, I will think about adding Urban Daggertooth to the deck. I've also been wanting to move away from Planeswalkers and focus more so on dinosaurs.
iwulf411: THANK YOU! Thank you for playtesting the deck. I love hearing people testing out my deck and giving me feedback. Warms my cold heart. :D
Titanoth Rex is in the deck because he is a large trampler and I have been slowly morphing the deck towards dinosaurs with trample. Siegehorn Ceratops is in the deck because she's a 2/2 for 2 with enrage that makes her bigger. So early game I can drop her in and cump block if need be and make her stronger. Raging Regisaur is on the coping block if we never see anymore dinosaurs with enrage. Taurean Mauler can come out without any argument from me. I will find a ramp spell to replace it.
I tried to cut lands in my commander decks, but everytime I do, I always get mana screwed in the get go. 38 just seems to be my sweet spot. I will consider going down to 36, but 34 just seems way to low for me. Ancient Tomb is a great ramp spell, yes it hurts me, but 40 life means I can use it 10 times before it gets too scary for me. If I ever get an original dual land, this will hands down come out for one of them. Bonders' Enclave & War Room, you are right but I lacked room in the deck for card draw, so I threw them in. These two would be switched out for original dual lands. Cavern of Souls is simply in the deck because I HATE blue. Forbidden Orchard has been on the cutting board several times, however, its always survived because I normally use it as a political tool or if I'm in a game with my wife, to keep her alive. Yes I know, nepotism, but I am a Mardu player at heart.
Skyshroud Claim will defiantly go back in. I cut it early on but you have a point, especially if I ever get my hands on an original dual land. Cultivate or Kodama's Reach were both in the deck at the start, but the more I played the harder it was for me to justify them because I kept cutting basic lands to the point where there were times where I could only find one land. Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip is a pet card of mine, but I cut it from the deck long ago because a lot of times I never could get it to flip due to never having enough creatures. I will consider adding it again. Elemental Bond I will consider re-adding as well. Birds of Paradise will be a maybe, if I don't go pure dinosaurs but Bloom Tender will be a no because she requires perms to be out. Fauna Shaman and Elvish Piper will be a maybe again because I have been considering going pure dinosaurs.
Thank you again for playtesting the deck.
bushido_man96: I'd love to see your list! I always like seeing what others come up with.
I run the reduce cost creatures to get Gishath out earlier or if a high costing dinosaur gets stuck in my hand for I have no ways of cheating them out anymore or returning them to the deck. However, your comments have won me over and the next time dinosaurs get support (I've heard rumors that Ixalan may be getting a new set next year), I will turn it into a pure dinosaur build.
Thank you all again for the comments. Once things calm down in my personal life and I return to work and pay off these medical bills, I will defiantly take a look at revamping Ixalan Park with your suggests and some of my own. Till then, keep the comments rolling and the upvotes a coming. :D

Aceh, Forbidden Orchard seems like a really fun include but it's quite expensive for a fun inclusion, if it gets reprinted I will sure get one. Conjurer's Closet needs a lot of mana and does very little. The sac outlets not only are much more efficient but can also make use of the survivors.

Hey mlequesne, thanks for commenting!
I think adding Forbidden Orchard is an inspired idea, great suggestion! The infinite lifelink combo on Boros Reckoner is also definitely something I will look into. That's a great close reading of the card's rule text :)
Blasphemous Act does synergize with my creatures, but I do think it might destroy many viable targets for Piru, which would diminish her effect. I'll see about running it as a supplemental boardwipe ;)

Hi friend, nice deck! I love your boldness.
I have some suggestions for you:
first of all Fiery Emancipation is perfect for your deck (I know it's in the maybeboard)
Forbidden Orchard feels like a good land, it gives you any color and creates creatures to be destroyed later
I love that you play en-kor creatures, maybe you can try the cheaper ones.
Shadowspear can help you deal with your opponent's indestructibility and also if you attach it to Stuffy Doll or his friends it can give you a lot of life. (I just realized that if you manage to make Boros Reckoner indestuctible and attach Shadowspear to them, you have a infinite life loop)
- Finally, talking about indestructible: Darksteel Plate can help you make your crew unkillable
See you around :) Congratz on your fabulous deck
